18 Watt Lite mod to vox top boost type

Post by jimwoud »

Hi guys,

Is it possible to mod the 18 watt Lite TMB into a more Vox Top Boost sound. With only one 12ax7 I mean. Has someone tried that. does the Top Boost schematic without the cathode follower work? Or with any add ons...

Thank you,

Jim

I don't think that would be a good idea.The Vox top boost sound is horribly bright and ice -picky.Note that Brian May uses the Normal preamp channel of his AC30s, to get his rich signature sound.
